Two houses, one old and one new.
The new house, built on an awkward angular end-of-terrace plot, draws reference to the old house. The original sash windows are reinterpreted with a similar proportion, but within rendered angled reveals. The slate roof carries through the lines and materiality of the terrace, but with integrated gutters to achieve a smooth elevation.
The old house, is reconfigured internally, extended and upgraded throughout. A change in level from front to back, and relationship to neighbouring properties and trees informs the rear elevation, also of brick. Internally, kitchens and staircases are of birch ply.
